On Mother's Day, Sunday, May 13, we honor mothers with free admission when accompanied
by a child 18 and under. It's a wonderful way to spend quality time in nature with
your child. The life-giving forest is both serene and exciting, full of interesting
plants and wildlife for the whole family to enjoy. Summer wildflowers are blooming
-- a gift of nature!

Save the Dates! Family Fundays Coming this Summer!

Enjoy family time on our new Family Fundays on June 22 and July 20, when we're offering
free admission for kids 18 and under! Activities include an opportunity to explore
the ancient forest with a complimentary, 90-minute naturalist-guided boardwalk tour
designed for kids and adults at 9:30 a.m.
The Blair Audubon Visitor Center will offer kid-centered activity and learning stations
for the whole family from 9:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Crafts and exhibits will engage
kids while teaching them about the habitats and wildlife of the Sanctuary and introducing
them to our environmental mission. Mother Nature is the perfect place to spend quality
family time that both educates and entertains.
